      Audience Member Varsin viihdyttävä tapa pohtia mikä valtio oikeastaan on... mutta oikein muuta sillä ei aiheeseen ollutkaan tarjota Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Very funny though there is much more to explore on micronations which hopefully someone else will in the future. There is something about the fact that the guy who invented the segway has his own country that just is hilarious all on its own. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Whilst pretty much grist for the mill film festival type good quality doco but still has some fairly remarkable and amusing insights - seen at 2011 Sydney Film festival Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Cynthia Fuchs PopMatters In posing the question, what is a country, the documentary also poses related questions. What does it mean to belong or to believe? And how might anyone imagine another way to do either? Dec 7, 2011 Full Review Simon Miraudo Quickflix Shapiro's touch is light, but he raises interesting questions about what it means to belong to a country, and whether or not that is something the United Nations, with all their "rules", could ever really define. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 14, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews
